Shutter Freeze

Series: A SNAPshot Novella + Novel
Author: Freya Barker and K.T. Dove
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Title: Shutter Speed
Series: A SNAPshot novella
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 15, 2017 
She likes picking up her camera because it allows her to see things through a different lens. Like when she lost her job recently and instead of focusing on what she’s forced to leave behind, she zooms in on the new options opening up in front of her. Or when a dangerous looking silver fox comes rolling up her path on a FatBoy, and her digital output shows a deep loneliness, matching her own, in his ice-blue eyes.
But when she's working on making her dreams come true, she inadvertently captures something in her viewfinder she can’t un-see.
He wasn’t supposed to be here, but he can’t seem to escape his old life. Stuck in an old trailer in the mountains, he walks a fine line between ruse and reality. With the arrival of a young-looking pixie—who turns out to be a full grown, hot-blooded woman—his balance is thrown. 
He tries to avoid her, but with the little pixel peeper snapping everything in sight, she unintentionally risks his exposure.
And his focus needs to be sharp to keep her from danger.
Title: Freeze Frame
Series: A SNAPshot Novel
Author: Freya Barker and KT Dove
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date:  Coming Soon
A new career, a new place, and a new man—you’d think after the rough year she’s had, Isla has finally found her stride. Of course it’s never that simple. Some dreams she is building, some dreams are taken away before they have a chance to form. But she never imagined that the one thing she’s worked so hard to realize, could be the cause it all breaks apart.
Ben doesn’t miss his assignments, his life of deceit, or his unsavory associations—but they appear to miss him. Just as he’s beginning to think perhaps there’s redemption for him after all, his dark past casts a long shadow.—and not just on him, but on the woman who made him believe.
Freya Barker inspires with her stories about 'real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
KT Dove grew up, and still lives, in the Midwest. At an early age she developed a love of reading, driving the local librarians crazy, and would plan plot lines and stories for her favorite characters. KT received degrees in English, Speech/Drama, and Education. And yet instead of becoming an English teacher as planned, she opted for an unexpected HEA. 

Now married, a mother and still an avid reader, she stumbled upon the Indie author movement and became involved on several levels. Never in her wildest imagination would she have thought she would co-author a book. With the support of her family, she took the plunge, adding writing to an already busy literary existence.  
She wouldn’t have it any other way.

by Samyah Leighton

Review: Spy Game by Suz de Mello (Contemporary Romance)

Here is some of the information for this Contemporary Romantic Suspense novel. 
  • The page length is 277 according to Amazon.
  • Amazon.com link is http://amzn.to/2iFTAF4
  • Fledgling agent Ani Sharif has finally been assigned to her first undercover mission—to seduce software tycoon Richard Rexford, known as the fearsome T-Rex of Silicon Valley. He's suspected of selling software secrets to the Chinese. Ani must succeed at her first assignment, but will handsome, clever Richard uncover her secrets and seize her heart?

When I was offered an opportunity to review this novel, I was slightly skeptical as I have very little interest in political intrigue, spy stuff, or cyber crimes.  My knowledge of these areas is rather rudimentary, but I do know enough to discern whether the circumstances are plausible or not.  And in this novel, they are.

Now, I don't necessarily expect all fictional novels I read to be realistic or anything like that.  I do, however, expect them to be somewhat plausible.  It is obvious that Ms. de Mello did her research.  Not only did she deeply develop her characters, but she immersed them into their respective roles in such a way that I struggled to tear myself away from the novel to take care of my current commitments such as "adulting".

So, even if the world of political intrigue, spy games, and cyber stuff is NOT your cuppa, I do believe you will appreciate the time and effort the author took into crafting this amazing novel.
